133. why do i have to

It's so hard, but I guess I have to do something. There are only two ways I can go. And it's not an easy choice. I really don't think I'm the sort who will give up my beliefs so easily, but with so many internal and external factors, I guess I'm on the verge of a decision. I really wish I knew which is the better choice to be made. But in the end, everything happens for a reason, yeah? We take different roads, but we all end up in the place we were meant to end up in.

Why does it feel like the old problems are re-emerging again?

Guess I'd need lots of help this time, directly or indirectly.

For now... smile! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D (this feels stupid.)

Anyways, creating a new blog soon, so goodbye!

131. resolutions

Happy New Year, it's 2009! The year has started on a real bad note, a homework-rushing note. I'd have to go pack my bag soon. And i heard we won't have lessons tomorrow. I've completed all my homework other than the memorising of Chinese idioms. I hope I can make up for that during the weekends.

New year, means new year resolutions. Let's hope I stick to them this year:

1. Pay attention in every class
2. Complete every piece of homework assigned
3. Improve in Chinese
4. Top 15 in cohort
5. Work harder in CCAs

Seems like everything I think of is academical-wise.

6. Stick to my resolutions

I need more resolutions like... read __ number of books in the year. But I haven't thought of a number yet. Oh well...

I can't believe for the first time, this thought came to my mind. It's a thought that is scary, and I don't know if that thought would be executed into action. There will come a time where I have to decide.

130. 2008-2009 the transition

HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE!

Cheers to the end of 2008, and to the start of 2009. Seems like much has happened to the world in 2008. Wonder if 2009 will be packed with so much action! And on a smaller scale, 2008 has been one of the best yet worst years ever, to me. Hope 2009 will end up a better year, and I think it would. Time really seem to pass too quickly, about a year ago (which seemed like yesterday) I was having trouble adjusting writing my date "2007" to "2008", and it seems like now I have to start getting used to writing "2009" on my dates.

It's been a real great year...

So, well, have a great great new year's eve.

Ending this quiz, and watching The Little Nyonya which is commencing in just 11 minutes! :D

Oh man, what a crazy quiz. Anyways I'm soon going to watch The Little Nyonya which is, well, as mentioned commencing in 11 (now 10!) minutes! Two-hour special today! And this was crazy. My family usually purchases Vitagen from an auntie that comes to our house every Monday. But she didn't come last Monday. She just came. And she said that she did not come because The Little Nyonya was starting, and she didn't want to miss the show. And she quickly left now because the show is starting soon (now 8 minutes)!

And my homework meter's finally hit 60%! I have only left... half of biology, nine tenths of physics, and a quarter of history. Disregarding Chinese, it's a feat! I wanna complete the homework by Wednesday. So at least I have Thursday to slack before school reopens Friday. The busy school times are returning, for the good or for the worse. But I bet they'll be fun. And my nights will be easier to fall asleep. Sec Two next year. Can't afford to procrastinate (although I still am and will.)

There isn't anything else to blog, so, goodbye! The show's starting soon!

128. the stars are tellin' you no

Today, I went to Compass Point. Initially thinking that there was piano lessons, and soon after finding out that there wasn't at all. However, it wasn't a wasted trip there. The Little Nyonya came to Compass Point? So, my brother, mum and I decided to wait and stay. You could say it was the biggest crowd in a shopping centre! Escalators were specially (?) made not to function so people could stand on them and watch the cast!? Saw many people I knew there too... No, not the cast, I mean schoolmates, and ex-schoolmates.

Oh, after that went to my Grandmother's house. Oh man, young children sure have a lot of energy. They can play with a stupid balloon for hours and not feel tired. And the worst thing is I had to join in! And you can't talk bad about young children (3 years old) in front of them, because they can understand you. So I had to employ the usage of more advanced English when conversing with my brother so they wouldn't be able to understand!

Unbelievably, my homework meter has risen to a 53%. The first rise seen since Christmas Eve! This was due to me (finally) choosing a topic for history after years and years of deliberation. (And this sounds totally like a report of the stock markets.) But it's worth celebrating! Homework meter must reach 80% (at least!) by Thursday night (and, no, not midnight)!

Still haven't got my To Kill A Mockingbird yet! All Populars seem to be out of stock of that book. And the school bookshop seem to have lied to me about not having the book. Or maybe I'm just that unlucky.

Won't blog more now! C'ya!

127. brilliance of a destruction

Christmas is gone! But there's twelve days, right?

Homework is really really not touched since days ago. Have much to be completed before school reopens Friday, which is so soon. Am yearning for school to return, yet not wanting to return to a kind of busier life.

The whole holiday seemed like a really crazy long break from the long months in school. It feels as if everything just slowed down. And when I think of school next year, it feels as if this holiday feeling is never coming back again. (This paragraph is full of crap, ignore.)

Oh man, Christmas was fun. Probably. Gifts from my parents were, well, the best. Well, expensive but, I think now I have a very guilty feeling why they bought such an expensive gift for me and I have to work extra extra hard in Sec 2 before I can repay this debt.

Brilliance doesn't taste good when served with destruction. But sometimes, that's all you've got. Weird conversations today, but never mind.

Won't say much more! Goodbye!
